Limited channels live stream on ipad

Used to get a large number of channels to live stream on ipad app but now only get about 15. All the other channels that show up under live stream, 50+, only have option to record. Did something change, did we lose functionality or do I need to update something?

I have the same problem, most channels aren't available for live streaming anymore, but some channels still are.  If I try to stream one of the channels at the bottom of the list, it tells me I must be connected to the same network as receiver, which I am.

Same thing happened to me.  Spent a while with tech support that confirmed that all settings are correct.  I get a few channels on the iPad, but not all the ones I previously got.  Tech support said it would escalate higher up their chain and that I would be contacted in 48 hours.  Not holding my breath...

Lo and behold, last week all of my streaming channels were available and started working. I changed nothing so DTV must have done something.

I turned the iPad off, pressed the red button on the receiver for a reset, turned the iPad on. Success! All streaming channels are back on the iPad.
